In recent years, our perspective on sugar has changed dramatically. The low-sugar or no-sugar approach is no longer a fad. Products that swap out the white stuff for sweeteners and natural alternatives are something we’ve come to expect from the best quality brands.
When developing the Fused product recipes, I knew that refined sugar wasn’t going to make the cut. In many leading Asian sauces that you’ll find in the supermarket sugar and water dominate as key ingredients. This wasn’t a trend we wanted to follow.
So, while our products are packed with flavour, you won’t find any refined sugar. Instead, we add honey to the recipes of 18 of our 19 products (our Sweet Chilli Stir Fry Sauce is the only exception).
Our customers tell us they are happily surprised when they check out the back of our packs and see just how low in sugar Fused products are in comparison to similar ranges on the market.
There’s also zero artificial colours, additives, preservatives and MSG added to any of the range. You can rest assured and trust Fused to help you recreate delicious and wholesome Asian food at home.
While many of my Pan-Asian recipes are low/no sugar, or completely free of refined sugar, we’ve rounded up 5 of our favourites to share with you. Read on for healthy dinner or lunch inspiration – there’s a great snack option in there too!
5 Healthy Low-Sugar Asian Recipes
1. Thai Green Chicken Vegetable Curry
Palm sugar is a key ingredient in Thai cooking. Your favourite Thai curry sauces are no exception and might contain a lot more sugar than you would think. Fused Thai Green Curry Stir Fry Sauce and Paste have all the fragrant flavours we know and love, but skip the refined sugar.

Black Bean stir fries are delicious but not always the healthiest choice. Sauces that smother your go-to dishes are often high in sugar. This Beef & Vegetable Black Bean Stir Fry recipe is a refined sugar free option that still packs a flavoursome punch.
